Creative resistance

A friend writes from Mexico:

Gossip/News: Two days ago the two most famous lesbian political activists and artists in this country, Jesusa Rodriguez and Liliana Felipe, got married (well actually proclaimed their domestic partnership, sociedad de convivencia). Turning a very private affair into a political act, they walked out of Coyoacan's city hall chanting "La convivencia tambien es resistencia." "Partnership is also resistance!"

Rodriguez has been in charge of resistencia creativa in the aftermath of the rightwing theft of the Presidential election from the insurgent left movement led by Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.

As happens all over the world, advances in one arena of progressive politics can make space in other areas of struggle.
